What is the value that I offer?  

 My personal attention and 36 years of Experience!

 

As the Broker of Record and Owner of Homelife Nu-Key Realty I can assure you that as your Realtor, you will receive the highest level of service and expertise possible.  I will put my 36 years of experience to work for you and commit my time and knowledge to ensure you achieve your real estate goals. 

I learned selling real estate through good old hard work and perseverance. My success is attributed to personal service and focusing on my clients needs. I earn my client's trust by showing them I truly care about them by listening to them. Whether buying or selling or both, my clients and I are a team and it's important to work together to achieve success.  I follow through by being responsive and there when they need me.  

In 1992, I advanced my real estate career successfully completing the educational requirements to become a Real estate Broker and established my first real estate brokerage and in 1993 I moved to Barrie to provide services for a large Barrie builder and was responsible for selling more than one thousand homes. 

Now with 36 years under my belt, and CEO and Broker of Record of my HomeLife Brokerage, I'm still hands on and out there doing what I love. " I love helping people buy and sell real estate. I can’t imagine a better job!  Everyday I look forward to working with people and helping them achieve their real estate goals” 
  

Over the years I have gained valuable knowledge and experience as a Realtor. “True knowledge comes from learning through years of experience” and I have learned so much and I put that knowledge and experience to work every day for my clients. "Buying or selling a home is likely one of the largest financial investments you will have and it’s important to entrust someone that has the knowledge and experience that can guide you through the entire process."


My Guiding Principal has always been to live by the Golden Rule, and that is to "Treat Others As I Would Want To Be Treated" 

I look forward to the opportunity to help you with your real estate needs.


Any time you want information on the market or are ready to buy or sell a property –contact me. There’s no obligation.
